“Good location but a little dated”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

We spent a week at Wakulla and it was fine for the location and price. Many long term residents create a real community atmosphere. The suite interior was clean but old feeling. Nice beach access and very nice staff.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

My wife and I were recently in Florida on vacation and spent a few days in the Cocoa Beach area. We had reservations for another hotel just down the street. This other place stuck us in a room next to a storage room. The badly scuffed furniture looked like it came from that storage room or a thrift store. Carpeting was worn with tufts of fibers sticking out and the bathtub had rust stains. Although relatively clean it seemed aged and depressing! We decided we could not stay there AND enjoy our Cocoa Beach vacation. We went to Wakulla simply because we passed it driving by and thought it looked "cool". The manager said we could view a room that was being finished with cleaning and reserve it for our three night stay if we liked it. Did we ever!!! We loved it and we love Wakulla! Our room was perfect. It was very spacious, clean, comfortable and the heated swimming pool was right outside a few short steps away. We loved the tiki vibe immensely. The inner courtyard landscaping around the pool area was incredible...like a botanical gardens! We marveled at how secluded this area felt even though there was a busy street out front. It was a tropical oasis. We loved having beach access on the premises. The front desk, maintenance and cleaning staff were all very acommodating and friendly. Usually we don't spend a lot of time within our hotel room or on the grounds since we like to explore attractions nearby. The Wakulla Suites was so wonderful we made extra time just to chill out at the pool, beach and gardens. It really felt more like a small resort. The only thing missing was a tiki bar for cocktails. We have already determined to return next February. Thank you Wakulla for coming to our rescue and saving our Cocoa Beach vacation!

We have stayed twice now both times in april/may and absolutely loved it!! Love it that its so close to the beach - only a few steps and your feet are touching the sand.
Room is beautiful spacious, beds are comfortable, bathroom is enough space and kitchen with coffee, utensils, ect. is great.
Steps away from grocery, ron johns, restaurants, beach, shopping!! Very handy. :)

Will return again for next vacation - Thank you to helpful staff and management !!

This property came highly recommended from friends, some of who have been staying here for decades. They did not let us down! I surprised my wife with a weekend getaway to Cocoa and we brought our 11-month old daughter. Man were we excited when we walked into the room to see how spacious it was! Two-separate rooms (one with two-twins, the other with one-king), a bathroom, living room, kitchen eating area, and full kitchen (full-size fridge, microwave, 4-burner oven, toaster, etc) - is what greeted us.

The closets are enormous, seriously. We knew right then that the place was a good fit for us. The property itself was very attractive. The outside of the buildings aren't much, but the inside courtyard is lush and very tropical. Many types of plants and flowers really give it a rain-forest type feel. The owners have also placed gas grills around the courtyard for guest use. You could tell they are used to people staying for extended periods. Like most suites the kitchen was stocked with plates, pots/pans, and silverware.

Heated pool and large spa completed what we were able to see. There are additional buildings that are right on the beach but we stayed in the ones closer to A1A. Our bed was very comfortable, much more than ones I've slept in at more expensive chain hotels. The cleaning staff did a great job cleaning our room, to the point we both noticed it. It was not just the typical "pick up the towels, make the bed, etc". It really looked like they cleaned - another unexpected touch.

The location is perfect - very easy to get to and easy to get in and out of when you are coming and going. There is a Publix grocery store less than a half mile away, 7-11 across the street and tons of places to eat nearby. We walked to Ron Jon and in doing so passed a dozen or so places to eat or have a beer.

We're local to the area and will definitely return to Wakulla Suites. This place really is a gem in today's world of cramped hotels and big-chains forcing you to do things their way. The staff was very pleasant and friendly and overall we certainly would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Cocoa Beach area.

Thanks for reading!

Room Tip: If you have to get a room on the 2nd floor, getting one close to the stairs makes for much easier lo...

Had a wonderful 2 night stay at Wakulla Suites in 9/13. We stayed pre-cruise. Staff was friendly, professional and attentive to needs. Felt like home away from home - fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedroom, 1 bath suite overlooking the garden, pool and activities. The rooms are old but very clean -- tropical décor. There are grills in the garden and we met folks that grilled out and shared shisk kabobs. Very family friendly! We were centrally located within walking distance to beach, pier, grocery and shopping. I will definitely stay again. We booked this through Port Canaveral Cruisers (Matt) as part of a fly, snooze, cruise deal. WE WERE MORE THAN SATISFIED!!

Room Tip: Definitely ask for the garden view!

Second stay at Wakulla, will be back. Relaxing, friendly atmosphere. Nice staff. Very quiet during our two stays around Christmas, have heard it can be louder over spring break. Many long term guests who are very welcoming. Wireless worked very well. Beach access, maybe 100 yard walk or so. Older furniture and tv's, but we don't visit to watch tv. Kitchen with utensils handy. Beds comfy, sleeps five with two bedrooms.

Plan on returning next year!

This all-suite hotel is about 50 yards/metres from the beach. It is mainly clustered around a good swimming pool within a tropical garden boasting hundreds of different plants.

Our suite was very spacious with two bedrooms each with a large double bed. The bathroom was a good size and the well-equipped kitchen was a big plus. A good hotel at a good price.
